John’s is another local and tourist hot spot in Kitty Hawk! Grab your a fried dolphin boat and one of their AMAZING milkshakes! Warning: parking can be tricky because they are always busy when they are open.

This is our favorite hole in the wall food joint. It’s a perfect place to go grab lunch and bring it back to the beach. Make sure you call ahead and place your order as the wait times can be a little lengthy, but it’s so worth it!

Burger Joint
“Art's Place is just a mile north of Beach Haven! Walk, bike or drive down our lazy back street to reach my fav local breakfast spot, or grab a burger for lunch or late night! No matter what you decide to get for breakfast, grab a 1/2 order of French Toast to try (it's not on the menu-the 1/2 order, but it's just the right amount to taste!)”
